3.0 out of 5 stars A drop in the ocean of mainstream music 1 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Maroon 5 since the beginning. I've held on through the waiting, through the rocky second album, and despite the rising celebrity status of the lead singer which made me wonder about the future for the band itself. I loved their third album as it seemed like they were finding their sound again but with new maturity and experience. But with the changing atmosphere of mainstream music seeming to force everyone to follow the same club music type format and the band seeming to sink into it with their fourth album 'Overexposed' , I started to fear that Maroon 5 are going the same way.

Despite quite enjoying the fourth album for being yet another successful exploration of a genre of music whilst also maintaining their unique style, I said to myself that if this album let me down by officially confirming the loss of Maroon 5's acousitc/folk/soul sound in favour of the mainstream 'club' sound (as has happened with so many other musicians) then I would officially give up on Maroon 5.

In all, I'd basically say that I'm hanging on with the band by a thread, but I'm willing to hang in there for one more.

Where the lyrics of previous albums were more heartfelt/poetic, the lyrics of this album are for the most part more short and simple verses to make room for those endless anthem type repetitions, however there are a couple of songs that seem to want to express something deeper then the 'hey girl' type of notion despite being wrapped up in dance beats.

The music itself has lost its acoustic sound almost entirely; instead you've got the drum machine and the electronic/dance instruments and the vocals have the echo effect on a lot of the songs, as well as the whole pitch bending thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pop factory 1 Sep 2014
By Benson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
'V' continues on nicely from 'Overexposed' with an even more commercial sound if that was possible. It does work and there is plenty to like if you enjoyed previous hits like 'Payphone' and 'Maps'. For the fans of Maroon 5's old style they may not be able to tell whether these are reject Katy Perry songs or simply a collaboration with some of Kylie Minogue's best writers.

As it goes both could be true as 'V' features plenty of well known co-writers as 'Overexposed' did. Lady of the minute, Sia Furler has a credit on the duet track with Gwen Stefani, a rather pleasant piano track but kind of begs the question, where are the rest of the band? Shellback, Rodney Jerkins and Ryan Tedder are other well known names that feature throughout. Interestingly, Adam Levine is the only band member this time to have any co-writing credits, despite always writing as a band on previous albums.

Soundwise, think 'Maps', Payphone', 'Daylight' and 'Love Somebody' and you have similar melodic and catchy songs throughout, nothing too experimental. My highlights were 'Animals', 'Sugar' and 'My Heart is Open' but there wasn't a single track I strongly disliked. This is a full blown 'pop' album and doesn't try to be anything else. The deluxe version is completely worth it for the insanely catchy and Gnarls Barkley esque 'Shoot Love'. I wouldn't be surprised if this became a single.

Even though he's previously stated publicly his loyalty is with the band, for me this album was a step closer to an inevitable Adam Levine solo album. If the writing credits are anything to go by, the rest of the band seem irrelevant now.

5.0 out of 5 stars OverexSongsAboutPosedJane! 9 Sep 2014
By MJJ
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes, that is my headline. Because this album, V, is a cross between their 4th album pop genre "Overexposed" and their R&B soul funk in Songs About Jane.

The album kicks off with a poppy disco drive "Maps"; is very good in the verses but messy in the chorus. Catchy song with success on the cards 9/10.

Second is "Animals"; a pop influenced sex drive song, about basically doing it like animals! Find myself singing it all day long! 9.5/10.

Next is R&B ballad "It Was Always You" it's an interesting move for Adam Levine! It comes off pretty well. 8/10.

Track 4- "Unkiss Me" is a mid tempo R&B. 8.5/10.

Followed by "Sugar", a real great song. Very Michael Jackson influenced with the "hoo"s and the chorus. 10/10.

Track 6 "Leaving California" is poor in fairness. Just a filler with a catchy chorus! 7/10.

"In Your Pocket" is a real interesting song with a great chorus and snazzy verses a standout for me 10/10.

"New Love" I don't like AT ALL. I think it's a bland pop song. 4/10.

"Coming Back For You" is another unnecessary filler IMO. 6/10.

"Feelings" is where the album rejuvenates with a finger snapping soul pop song! 9.5/10.

"My Heart Is Open Ft Gwen Stafani" erm no! A pretty ballad but it doesn't suit either Adam or Gwen. If you want a soulful ballad go for "Sad". 6/10.

"Shoot Love" is my favourite! 10/10.m

Track 13 "Sex And Candy" is a really relaxing song and the vocals are excellent on it!! This is so reminiscent of SAJ. 10/10.

"Lost Stars" is a first look at the surely impending Adam Levine solo album. Yes it's good! 9/10.

Go get it! Much to love! Good Job Adam! Let's ignore the others because they now seem irrelevant!
